Memorable Outdoor Walks in Beijing

Last week, I was bound indoor for a couple of days, which almost ruined my trip to Beijing. Luckily, an outdoor walk saved my day. I was taken to visit the Great Wall at Badaling section and Longqing Gorge. The whole time my tour guide was by my side, entertaining me with some history and stories about the Great Wall, which made my excursion to Badaling and Longqing Gorge more fun and memorable. I just could not have done it without him.

Badaling Great Wall

I woke up to a sunny day that day. After my tour guide showed up at my hotel, we hit the road to Badaling on a van. It was a fun and short ride over there. Upon arriving at the foothill of the wall, we hopped on a chair lift up the wall. We started walking along the solid path the minute we landed on the wall. By the time we got on the wall, travelers started to increase by minute, and because we got there earlier than others, it was not as terrible as I thought. I still got to enjoy my walk on the wall at my own pace, and from time to time, I could snap some of my favorite photos without anyone in them. The wall itself was just incredible and very majestic. It was just great and amazing to breath in the fresh outdoor air, take in the lovely countryside landscape and more importantly, I did enjoy my walk on the wall. Days of being bound indoor, I really needed that walk to stretch my legs for a while. After an hour of trekking along the wall, I got tired and had to take some rest by a watch tower. My tour guide and I had some small talk over there. Soon we continued with our walk on the wall. I really had a good time walking on the wall.

After walking the wall, we hit a nearby restaurant for lunch. The food was great and I had a good rest in the restaurant too. After our lunch break, we hit the road again and this time we headed for Longqing Gorge. The scenery over there was even more amazing than I saw at Badaling. Lovely river, green-covered hills, walkable trails were all over the place. Overall, I just would not have that spent any other way!
